One year later, and making a quick trip to the store after introducing our newest baby into the world is still the same struggle.. and it’s real moms, right!? I’m so excited to share this new program currently being offered to members of BJ’s Wholesale Club! Lugging the baby and sometimes, all of your kids if you have multiples into the store to pick up just a few of the necessities is like wrangling a wild animal out into the wild. In the last year, I’ve started doing not only my grocery shopping online, but choosing where I shop based on who has the best stock for “in store pickup” items so I don’t have to walk through the store with a crying baby or complaining toddler.
The new Pick Up & Pay option at BJ’s Wholesale is the answer to my prayers! And also, the answer to everyone else too. In a year end survey last year, the National Retail Association found that 66% of online shoppers want the convenience of picking up an item immediately rather than waiting for it to ship. And being a mom especially, this is EXACTLY what I need! Here’s how it works :
- Sign into your BJ’s account online (you must be a member, so if you’re not, sign up for this FREE 90 day membership offer valid until July 3, 2016!
- Browse the many items available in your wholesale club. Note : I did find that many items I was searching for ended up being out of stock even though I was shopping my specific club, but that din’t stop me from still finding what I was looking for! While browsing, search for the “Pick up in Club” wording on the bottom of the item and when you click it and if it is available and in stock, your screen will look similar to the one I show below.
- Add it to your cart and and if you order before 1PM, your item will be ready to pick up on the same day!
- When you go into your local club to pickup, head straight to the Customer Service desk, OR my store had a sign for “In Store Pickup” right when I walked in and your local BJ’s employees will have your items all ready for you!
We’ve been gearing up for our big Disney trip later this month (eeeek!) so I’ve been stocking up on all of the essentials. Extra phone chargers, batteries, diapers and wipes (and let me tell you moms.. this Pick Up & Pay option is a GAME CHANGER for us moms with little ones!) So I loved being able to go online and shop while knowing I could pick up all of my items that day. What a convenience, right!? Not having to actually walk through the store to shop, but not wait either?
So.. if you’re already am ember of BJ’s Wholesale Club, I definitely encourage you to check this out. ESPECIALLY for you moms! Use it for big items, necessities, or use it for your whole big shopping trip for the month! Make things that much easier on yourself… you can even gift yourself with the convenience of not having to go to the grocery store for Mother’s Day, right!? I know that’s a gift I would adore!
And if you’re not already a member, snag your free 90 day membership before it’s too late. I think you’ll quickly find you’re both saving money and snagging some amazing deals at the same time. With summer right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to stay stocked up on snacks and essentials while the kids will be home!
